Camp Rankin & Fort Sedgwick (Former Location)
In the cattle pasture and cornfield to the north of the interpretive sign is the actual location of Camp Rankin and Fort Sedgwick. Unfortunately, no structures remain from the military era. The only indication of the old fort is a commemorative flagpole placed decades ago by the Fort Sedgwick Historical Society. The fort area is located on private land and is not open to the public. Artifacts recovered from the site are on display at the Fort Sedgwick Museum.
